Product description

“The special fibers of which these components are made augment the amount of acoustic absorption, since the curves or cylinders are based on precise ratios and measurements in order to obtain precise layers of fiber. Also, in the top of these rather mysterious objects are iron panels of a particular shape, which allow the fibers to hang in a way that makes them look like drapery. The visual softness of these components gives them something in common with the delicacy of textile furnishings and, as a result, also makes them suitable for use in classic environments where rigid shapes cannot be introduced. The Diesis (Sharp) and Bemolle (Flat) components we have designed are modular and can be made to the size which optimizes their performance. Hanging in the air they look rather mysterious because they are a really new, unusual phenomenon in the acoustic sphere.” Alessandro and Francesco Mendini.

The two products Diesis and Bemolle constitute a new phenomenon in environmental acoustic design.
They are sound-absorbing panels with black shiny steel self-supporting structures, based on the brand new Snowsound-Fiber technology. This consists of soft polyester fibers with silver ions, which are connected to each other and are intrinsically fire-resistant and bacteriostatic.

The interaction between the special acoustic fibers and the special conformation of the objects makes it possible to reduce annoying sound reverberation in the environment, thus improving the quality of life.
The drapery comes in 5 colors: red, white, gray, beige and dove gray.
Snowsound® products were developed and are produced in Italy.
